The Bad and the Beautiful: Conversations on Cinema - Episode 10

On this episode, Charles and Jeff discuss a debut film of unapologetic race provocation, a long-awaited follow-up of poetic grace, another Marvel movie, and more.

Kicking things off with a controversial bang, we’re sorry/not sorry for our takes on Boots Riley’s ambitious race parable SORRY TO BOTHER YOU.

We close by reflecting on LEAVE NO TRACE, a small but substantial work of American life on the margins. It's as quiet and graceful as SORRY is not. It’s the latest from writer/director Debra Granik, her long-awaited follow-up to the Jennifer Lawrence star-making indie WINTER’S BONE.

In between, we size up the latest chapter in Marvel’s lightweight franchise, ANT-MAN AND THE WASP, and Jeff highlights the new Elvis documentary that we didn’t know we actually needed right now.
